More Lil Spills
Big week this week. San Diego girls are our guinea pigs for a few new dances. Chantel arrived today to start working with them. Heading there in the next hour.
A few months ago we did a charity event for a former employee and raised a lot of money to go towards her cancer treatment. Last week I found out that she never showed up for the charity event at our Austin bar and never picked up the money. Today Daniel suggested we call MD Anderson and try to pay her bill directly. Not sure how we find out her medical bill situation? The money was raised with the intent to help with a series of cancer treatments for her. It is coming to a point where the money will get donated to someone else in need if she does not step forward. Honestly, I just don’t get it? 1. Was it a false claim? 2. Is pride or shame stopping her from coming in? ( so many people love her) Again, I don’t get it.
$239 for a fucking ticket!! I pulled over in front of Samurai Pie to pick up Jackson from work. In 2 seconds flat a cop came a wrote me a ticket. This is what the ticket that just came in the mail states: I am in violation of 22400A. I just looked up the violation and this is the definition;
22400. (a) No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow
speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of
traffic unless the reduced speed is necessary for safe operation,
because of a grade, or in compliance with law.
No person shall bring a vehicle to a complete stop upon a highway
so as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of
traffic unless the stop is necessary for safe operation or in
compliance with law.
(b) Whenever the Department of Transportation determines on the
basis of an engineering and traffic survey that slow speeds on any
part of a state highway consistently impede the normal and reasonable
movement of traffic, the department may determine and declare a
minimum speed limit below which no person shall drive a vehicle,
except when necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law,
when appropriate signs giving notice thereof are erected along the
part of the highway for which a minimum speed limit is established.
Subdivision (b) of this section shall apply only to vehicles
subject to registration.
What is the definition of a ” highway” ? I may fight this. Bullshit. No idea how the bars did. Wished San Diego did better during comicon but we really did our normal numbers. I was expecting mardi gras numbers.
Last night I took Jackson and his friend to a punk rock concert. NoFX. and we saw Slightly Stoopid as well. Really fun night. Unfortunately this morning I woke up and did a sprint triathlon. I swear they think I am a special olympics kid. While they are whizzing by me on their bikes I keep hearing ” You’re doing great. Keep going.” It’s like the chant volunteers use for children. Oh god I sucked today!!!IMG_3652.MOV
10 year anniversary was a success. The girls were on fire . Marsha did an incredible job getting everything together. She runs a tight ship! Bam she’s good. Chantel really had the girls on point with the dances. Just a great night. I finally wore my electric blue sequined skin tight dress. Just a great evening.
Had a scare with my mom during the day. The nurses at her assisted living home thought she had had a stroke but after blood work and scans were done the doctor said it is severe pneumonia . The doctor said when you get older the body shuts down functions to preserve energy to fight the infections. Her garbled speech and body weakness was a result of that process. Aging is so hard on the body and the soul .
Some man just told me that I was as hot as ” Fish Grease”. That’s pretty damn hot. I am going to use that all the time now.
Tomorrow I am heading to San Antonio for the 10 year anniversary. Marsha has set up a spa resort day for her, Chantel, and myself. Holla!!! Christhian and Lizzie have been working on a new dance for me. Very difficult to do it via video versus being in one room together. But the chorus looks awesome. It should end up great!!
Bam San Diego, San Antonio , and Denver! I love waking up on a Wednesday and seeing those numbers.
A few months ago I bought a Sunnto Triathlon watch. I use the heart rate monitor when I do the treadmill, elliptical, kinetic bike trainer. ( can’t figure out how to get the watch to log in miles with indoor machines) . I also track my runs and swim with the watch . A few weeks ago I realized that when I plug it into my computer it creates a public site that people can view. I have 5 followers. I decided to look at what my followers are doing as their workouts. Oh god, these people do full iron mans as a pre breakfast workout. It’s embarrassing. My goal is to find the regular people and start following them. ( 1 guy has run 700 miles in the day 30 days. F insane)
Well only took a half a Baileys and coffee and a half of a Moscow Mule to get me through the photoshoot . Thanks to jenn and Nicole , super star Coyotes from the Vegas bar and NYNY for putting so much effort and love into the brand. “Lil I need you to dance around and have fun”. “mr. Photographer I am in my bra and this corset is too tight. How about we stick with straight face , I look skinny pose”.
MyNY Hotel and Casino have asked myself and two of the Vegas Coyotes to pose for pictures for their upcoming reopening promoting Coyote Ugly turning 21. They brought in makeup and hair, ok I am already getting nervous , I took some vodka bottles from the mini bar. Urgh. I am great on tv but definitely nervous with still shots . Today’s mantra ” I created an internationally famous brand . Own it and bat my eyelashes ! Bam

This is how I spent my day , getting the dog out of animal control. She escaped yesterday and I received a call today . Cages are cages but this ASPCA Humane Soceity looks like a hotel resort. I was expecting a ghetto trailer park. ” how is Bonnie ?” Their answer ” Old”. Yeah thanks .
All the stylists that work at the Coyote Ugly San Diego bar and not one person can cut and color my hair. Fine I booked outside the family. Green means I don’t like it. Brown with warmth means I do.
Went to bed cranky thinking about work. Woke up and locked myself out. Finally got back in. While I was on the elliptical I viewed my dog escaping. Nope still haven’t found her. Things come in 3s. Could be the last email about a Memphis issue. Hopefully the day now holds only positive!
This is what’s going on in my neck of the woods. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-anchovies-la-jolla-coast-20140708-story.html
1.Photoshoot in Vegas on Tuesday. I should be dieting and getting my hair done. I told them to make sure there is some alcohol on the ready since I get very nervous.
2.It took me weeks of bitching at Mac but finally Samurai Pie looks better.
3. Some new possible licensees in Europe. I am thinking we need a person specific to international licensing.
5. Reorder Key west
6. NY? urgh
A lot of little things on my plate right now. Ok I need to get my fat ass outside and running.
Notice Mac isn’t in the picture.
Dinesti never trained for a triathlon and did it! Bam I proud of her.
Heading to Dallas for meetings. Lee, Daniel, and I in the land of the liquor and beer companies . Did I misread an email they said we have a meeting with Compari along with the big beer and liquor companies? That seems a bit out of our arena.
Nashville crushed everyone on Saturday. I think it’s Daniel’s personal goal to get that bar to the number one spot in the country.
Why I very rarely use Facebook: I checked Facebook today and found 3 emails from a customer in Denver asking me to fix the Denver’s bar’s bathrooms. OK I told them to fix it. Fine! Meeting with some of the beer and liquor companies outside Dallas tomorrow. Always interesting. Mac and I doing the Dine and Dash in the Gaslamp on Thursday. Hopefully he won’t be so chickens shit like he was for the triathlon. For god’s sake it’s only a 5k.
